Overheated food waste crusher under the sink

Ask a Plumber


I overheated my food waste crusher under the sink. It no longer works.  Do you think a plumber can fix it, perhaps by replacing a part, or do you think I need to buy a new one?

Your advice would be appreciated.

  1. Are you talking about a garburator or a trash compactor? If it is a garburator, a plumber could definitely help with that. A lot of times it can be repaired by unjamming it or resetting. Other times, if it is burnt out, it needs to be replaced. If it is a trash compactor that is something most plumbers don’t deal with and I would call an appliance repair man.
